Why You Should Attend
Stay current on disclosure requirements and developments affecting annual disclosure documents and proxy soliciting materials prepared by SEC reporting companies. Hear from the SEC staff and our faculty, who will focus on current “hot issues,” best practices, and practical pointers. The upcoming reporting season appears headed towards being another interesting one, with significant events and uncertainties covering a wide spectrum of matters affecting public company disclosures. These include the Dodd-Frank Act mandated compensation-related rulemaking by the SEC; non-GAAP and other financial disclosures; domestic and international economic, political and regulatory uncertainties and developments; cybersecurity; and climate change disclosure trends. Ethics and whistleblower developments impose even further challenges on both in-house and outside counsel. Our faculty will discuss key areas of staff comment, staff review priorities and interpretations, disclosure drivers and best practices, and “must know” accounting developments affecting financial disclosures.
